The Russian Navy Pacific Fleet Flagship is on the move

While waiting for the Fotiy Krylov to arrive back in Vladivostok, I've been paying more attention than usual to Russian Pacific fleet movements.  I was happy to see something in my morning Twitter feed from @7FBTK and @az1ok about a flotilla, including the Pacific Fleet flagship Varyag, leaving Vladivostok, headed to the Indian port of Visakhapatnam ( Original source here )

Last November, a Russian Pacific Fleet flotilla headed down to the Coral Sea and spooked the Australians who were hosting the G20 summit in Sydney.  Was that Russian President Vladimir Putin flexing his muscles? Or just an exercise that had been planned long before?  Who's to say...

This time the ships are headed for joint exercises with the Indian Navy, under the command of Rear Admiral Alexander Yuldashev (контр-адмирала Александра Юлдашева - a quickly rising star in the Russian Navy, from what I gather).  The visit is expected to last six days.  December 7th to 9th they will be moored in port conducting team building exercises and cultural exchanges.  December 10th to 12th they will be conducting naval exercises in the Bay of Bengal, including live fire exercises.  This is a follow-up visit to last summer's Sea of Japan joint drills with the Indian Navy.

The Russian Pacific Fleet flotilla taking part in the deployment is comprised of the following ships:
  • Slava-Class Missile Cruiser Varyag (Варяг) №2010
  • Sovremenny-Class Destroyer Bystryy (Быстрый) №715
  • Ingul-Class Salvage Tug Alatau (Алатау) №02672
  • Boris Chilikin-Class Fleet Oiler Boris Butoma (Борис Бутома) №621
